Part of the diamonds antique charm, it does show a subtle hint of warmth when looking at the side, as is typical for diamonds from its time period. However, on the face up, the bright white reflections in the diamonds sparkle largely overwhelm the color. Looking straight down onto the stone it is hard to notice any warmth, especially when out in daylight. Generally it is in the white range of color and as it is mounted in the ring, this further contributes to mask the color.
